|Dark Heresy | Published 12 July 2010|
I got a chance to talk to a lot of really great gamers recently at Malleus Imperator and Free RPG Day, and I must say the enthusiasm our community has for the Dark Heresy line is invigorating!
There were many questions to be answered and today I am happy to give you a glimpse into the future of Dark Heresy.
In this latest installment of Knowledge is Power (pdf, 1.3 MB) you will read reports from the Acolytes of Inquisitor Acherus who are on the trail of a mysterious artifact and in the process uncover a terrible secret that threatens to set the Calixis sector on a spiral into oblivion!
So head over to the support page and peer into the grim future...
Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, a setting in the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.
I'm tickled pink that I'll be continuing to pour money into FFG! Looks like a fine series of products.
So long savings...
Although I agree that the path they set in here is great. I am a bit sad that the Adeptus Mechanicus is not on it. Maybe later i guess and hope.
Fascinating. Looking forward to this and to the Rogue Trader and Deathwatch releases.
Is it just me, or does the flavor text suggest playable ogryns? "Hopefully we can bring one of these beasts along with us."
Finally good news for all Dark Heresy Fans! You absolutely rock!!!
Wow... this looks like DH is about to double its players source books! :P
Always glad to get more adventures... really hoping there's some good campaign building tools in these too. WOOT DH owns :)
wow thats looking good, and thats just for dark heresy, there are 2 other game settings that we must get books for :) so I was thinking, lets just give FFG all our wages each month and we can get ALL the nice new books as soon as they come out :) the art is looking good too, some great covers, also some good book titles, not at all like WW and the crap they name stuff LOL :)
keep up the good work guys and girls!
This is exactly what a lot of people were wishing for. Either they listen to people or they just already know what we want :)
And here a pessimistic and cynical me actually went and speculated that FFG might just let Dark Heresy go after the release of Ascension and the concluding part of the Haarlock Legacy. After all, DH has recieved quite a fiar share of books already, and due to the fact that Deathwatch and Rogue Trader must certainly demand some serious attention, I entertained the somewhat grim notion that FFG might put any further DH supplements on a very low priority.
It's VERY nice indeed to have been so wrong about something! : )
What's even more interesting are the hints that further supplements will be dedicated to a more in-depth look at each of the different career paths (an idea I've actually pondered over myself from time to time). Too bad though that a book that details the servants of the Adeptus Mechanicus is yet to be revealed, but since most of the others get their spotlight attention, I guess one can be optimistic that something like that will show up later on.
Anyhow, it's nice and reassuring to see that FFG isn't about to abandon the RPG that started it all (with WH40K roleplay that is). Let's hope that the game will live to have an impressive library of supplement books rivalling that of classics such as Call of Cthulhu, Dungeons and Dragons and the World of Darkness franchise.
Merciful God-Emperor, this is wonderful news! Doubly so if the implications carry throughI'm betting on a Ordo Hereticus or Xenos sourcebook in 2012, with more career and topic-focused books. This is PERFECT!
FFG, my credit card is at your service.
Grey Knights, Guardsmen, Arbitrators, Clerics, it is fun the service for the Emperor!
